The latest Cortana server-side updates offer fun with riddles and trivia
Microsoft's Cortana digital assistant keeps getting new and fun updates on the server side. Today, users who have Cortana installed on Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 10 can get a riddle to solve when they say, "Surprise me."
As you can see in the image above, Cortana has the riddle shown as if it was displayed in a mirror. We will leave it to you to solve this puzzle, and if you do Cortana asks that you retweet it. This new server-side feature is in addition to one Microsoft added to Cortana a few days ago, where it will offer up a random piece of trivia if you say "What's up".
Hopefully we will see more of these fun distractions from Microsoft added to Cortana in the weeks and months ahead.

With non - active Cortana
But I'm afraid that Cortana can't understand our sleepy voice yet...
But since Cortana would unlock the phone in my pocket as soon as I activate it with the bluetooth earbuds, and start the madness of touchscreen activation... this little detail takes out 80% of Cortana's utility for me. Cortana is stil half-baked, it's not even beta.
Cortana get smarter!
